HDCH Co op Program: Placements for 2020-2021
Beginning after Family Day and into March, Mr. Van Egmond looks forward to talking to all students who are planning to do a Co op next year, so the planning for an exceptional placement experience can begin. All students who plan to do a placement next year are asked to complete a Co op Info Survey.
Please take 5 minutes to complete this short survey by Monday, February 24. Once your survey is submitted, he will be in touch to set up a follow-up conversation to start exploring your options. Thanks to all the students who have already completed this!
A link to the Co op Info Survey (2020-21) can be found on the Co op Edsby page or here >>.
Student transcripts for OUAC and OCAS will be updated shortly after first semester exams. It is very important for students to check their online accounts for accuracy. Students who are enrolled in independent studies or correspondence courses must check their accounts to make sure that all credits are accounted for. Students should ensure that any external (AMDEC, Red Hill, ARCT, GELA, Gary Allen, etc.) marks are reported to Student Services.
Checking online accounts
Most students have completed their initial applications through OUAC and OCAS. It is important for all applicants to check their email and online accounts for information on supplementary applications, residence, and financial aid. Remember that most schools require students to register or to log-in to unique on-line accounts. Log-in information is usually provided via an acknowledgment email.
Admissions decisions: most colleges and universities are currently in the middle of their admission reviews. Some students will receive offers in the coming weeks, others may not receive an offer until second-semester mid-terms have been received. Students shouldn’t panic if they have not yet received an offer; the majority of offers are released in late April or early May.
March Break Open Houses
Most colleges and universities have spring / March break open house/visits days. These are great opportunities for students to check out campus life before making final decisions. Check with the admissions/recruitment office of the individual institutions, or drop by StuServ for help.
All students, particularly those in grade 12, are reminded to submit records of accumulated service hours to the office as soon as possible. The deadline for graduating students to submit 40 hours is May 30.
